Paints Extend Win Streak To 13 Straight

Presented By McDonald’s, I’m Lovin’ It!

The Chillicothe Paints have tied the Prospect League record for most consecutive wins at 13, rallying to beat Champion City 7-6, Saturday at V.A. Memorial Stadium.

The Kings built a 6-0 lead after their first two at-bats, but the Paints answered with a run in the second inning, four runs in the fifth and two in the sixth.

Chillicothe’s bullpen held Champion City scoreless over the final 7 innings of the game.

Five different Paints players drove-in runs for the game.

Chillicothe improves to (20-12) overall for the season and is now (3-0) in the East-Ohio Valley Division for the season’s “second half”, which they need to win to gain a post-season berth, unless they finish runner-up to the Kings, who won the first-half division title.
